Okay enough reminiscing, we’ve got a review to do. I thought what better way to celebrate my one year than by trying a product that incorporates the main flavor of my first review, the underutilized fig. When Dubba first posted about the new yoplait frozen yogurt, their Raspberry Fig greek yogurt was the only flavor to peak my interest. Ever since then, I've been on the lookout for it but to no luck. When Wells asked me if there were any of their new products I wanted to try, I jumped at the opportunity and requested a free pint. Seeing as my love for raspberries equals that of Dubba’s, this one seems right up my alley.
Well it’s still very hard but I’m able to scoop around the edges at least. The base is definitely raspberry. It’s very natural tasting and slightly tart. It’s all around pleasing but a tad bit light on total impact I was actually expecting for a higher amount of tartness coming from both the greek yogurt and the raspberries but it’s very mild.
The texture of this froyo is kind of weird. While it is creamy, it leaves a chalky feeling in your mouth. I’ve never experienced this before and I’m certainly not a fan of it. Looking over the ingredients, I realized they don’t even use actual greek yogurt in the product like other brands do. I remember the whole story about Yoplait’s normal greek yogurt not actually being true greek yogurt so this doesn’t surprise me. I think this weird chalkiness is coming from the “milk protein concentrate” that is high up on the list. It’s a shame too; I really like the flavor of this one but that chalkiness ruins the experience for me.
Verdict? Awesome flavor, not so awesome texture.
Buy Again? Nope, the chalkiness is a deal breaker.
